Color Palettes

Rust, Saffron, Meadow and Rain

August 26, 2009

Last week’s inspiring image was a beautiful pen and ink drawing by Devon Kelley-Yurdin and one of our readers was curious to see how that image would translate into wedding inspiration. Well, here it is!

What I love most about this palette is that it has the warmth of fall colors without being too dark and heavy. A touch of blue or green in just the right shade can really bring a fresh feeling to a fall palette.

Stationery Options:
Vivian wedding invitation (printed in Gold ink on Ecru paper)
Love Logo #13 invitation (printed in Ginger ink on Ecru paper)
Love Logo #19 invitation (printed in Ginger ink on Ecru paper)
